We usually go to EL CAMELLO, but this was right across the street from our hotel, so we gave it a shot based on the hotels security gaurd recomendation. It is good, but not as great as some others, including El Camello. The portions are very cheap and the staff is grumpy. Oh well they can fix this easily with a manager reading this review.

Visited the place on recommendation and was not disappointed. We had a cerviche for starter which was pretty large for the price and delicious - the fish was perfect. We then ordered the mixed fish grill which was for three people but only two of greedy us. When it came we instantly regretted gorging on the free nachos as it was huge! A massive platter of octopus, squid, prawn and fish on a lovely bed of fresh salad and veg. A little spicing but not much which was fine as the fresh flavours of the fish burst through and sauces were provided on the side as needed. We tried to finish it unsuccessfully and were offered it to be bagged up to go, which we declined as nowhere to keep it fresh. In hindsight the grilled fish platter alone would have been plenty and it was reasonably priced for the portion size given the location. Staff friendly and attentive, would return for sure

We tried the 3 tacos for 95 pesos. We order shrimp, fish, and octopus. The fish was the better of the 3. The fish was nicely seasoned. The octopus suckers part of the tentacles were a bit scorched. Making me feel the meat was burned.

Getting here was limited to taxi since its on the other end of Av. Tulum from the hotel zone. But, it was decent tacos.

Came for the reviews but was disappointed. Grilled fish is very small and side dishes were cold and super simple. Service was not great maybe because it was just before they closed.
